June 30 – Burying people.

Burying people.
Used to this? Even the
people with no names.

Whenever I hear people at church complain about parking, I respond, “There are a lot of churches who wish they had a parking problem.”

So far, this American Experiment, thus far so nobly advance, has succeeded.

Maybe beyond the founding father wildest dreams.

As proof I offer the extent to which people will try to get here.

Regardless of which side of the immigration argument, isn’t the reason people want to be here common ground?

Is not the United States of America the greatest country in the world.

And if so, aren’t we better than this?

When I read Luke 12:48, From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded, I think of Thomas Jefferson’s, “Indeed I tremble for my country when reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever.

Hearts have to be hard to become used to burying the “The desconocidos (unknowns) under the mounds of soil dampened by recent rains in the Piedras Negras graveyard were buried in a cardboard or thin plywood coffin with no markings and, despite Mexico’s deep religiosity, no ceremony of any kind.”
